I think it would have been something like "Power-Twin" or "Power-Cams" something goofy like that.

But the unused "Dream car", experimental or styling exercises is where the name should be found. Then you have a REAL name from AMC.

Just an update......

Ran new hard fuel line and pump....





installed a push nutton start because I dont like the original ignition location..the knicks and scratches are from keys hanging and banging the painted dash..I will be touching this area up..



I should have quite a bit of progress next week..we should be buttoning up under the hood and then detailing it back....
wiring will be done..were 90% done now..
I got the left rear brakes rebuilt and finishing the right side Monday..
Then the trans mount/crossmember..
clutch pedal needs to be mounted in place..
fab a new shifter handle..
reinstall the interior...
mount battery in the trunk and run cables...
uuuummmmmm theres got to be something I am forgetting??
Oh yeah, finish mounting the cold air box and runners to the weber....
seems to never end....

This is such a killer build! I can't find the words to describe how much this appeals to me.

Yeah, it's a good one! Those LA winters must be harsher than I thought... nothing done since last November until now! I would assume you've had customer's cars to get out of the way first, so slow progress on the Rambler might be a good thing...

unfortunately it seems the cool stuff is usually found in the bottom of a parts bin, with no information known about some 'interesting little part'. lol. Hopefully its different this time.

I'll have to look it up.

As for engine names, how about SC/TwinCam... a slight reference to the SC/Rambler


Of course the '69 version didn't have a blower, so the meaning would be tweaked a little.

Go to my thread in hotrodding basics on finding parts. The "Specification" books in your parts store are full of these goodies just waiting to be found.
